Riverdale fans were in for a real treat in the latest Feb 7 episode, when The Vampire Diaries’ co-creator Julie Plec stepped in to guest direct the ep!
Not only was it a case of Riverdale getting Julie onboard, but there was a hidden crossover which Julie herself didn’t even realise!
During the episode, we get a glimpse at the house Cheryl Blossom has been living in.
It turns out that it’s the exact same house that was used as the Salvatore House for the pilot episode of The Vampire Diaries!
Julie spoke to Bustle about the crossover, saying, "It was so funny, I had seen Thistlehouse on camera but it hadn't registered with me," she told Bustle. "And when we pulled up the driveway for the location scout to go see it, I was like, 'This is so familiar. I feel like I've been here before.’
"I actually took a good look at the house and realized it was the Salvatore House from [The Vampire Diaries] pilot. Isn't that hilarious? Because we shot the pilot in Vancouver [before moving to Atlanta for the series]. And the backyard of it which is so gorgeous is where we built our cemetery. That was a nice flashback!”
